BigToe in H-alpha. The bright toe-like region at the top (North) is IC1274 near the Lagoon. The whole image is reminiscent of a turtle swimming up the page. There is a beautiful bright region at seven o'clock that looks like the shell of a crayfish. To the right of that is a spectacular snakeing dust track that looks like a dragon.
